Thank A Police Officer Day on Delmarva
September 13 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 pm
WHAT: “Thank A Police Officer Day” is a nationally recognized date created to show appreciation to law enforcement. Established in 2012 by the Whole Truth Project, this is the sixth year we will be visiting and showing appreciation to those who protect and serve.
WHEN: Observed on the 3rd Saturday in September, volunteers will be organizing events across Delmarva during the week of September 13th through the 18th.
WHERE: Our focus is primarily centered on the fourteen counties of Delmarva, which include three counties in Delaware, nine counties along Maryland’s eastern shore, and two counties located only the Virginia coast. All together there are more than 140 agencies in this area, ranging from small towns to big cities, so there’s likely one right near you.
HOW: Consider adopting a local department and having lunch or dinner delivered, create a fruit or gift basket and make a visit, or simply drop off cookies with a card saying “thank you”. We’ve had people order meals for each shift, send pizza, or set up a snack table for the day. At home you could display a blue light on your porch, fly a blue line flag at your business or post your message of support on an outdoor sign or billboard.
